Phew. So yep, this is what we’ve been up to around the Murray/Schumpert households; going gangbusters to the point that we pretty much forgot about the Thanksgiving meal; I’m writing this on Tuesday night and we don’t even have a turkey yet! Horrors!
Some crafty friends are coming together to have an Open House (Whimsicalities) on the day after Thanksgiving; good ol’ Black Friday. Address is 183 Madawaska Ave in Pittsfield. It’ll be held from 6-10 pm, though…to give you a chance to hit the big box stores then come buy up some quality homemade. Refreshments will be served, gift wrapping is available; if you are local, please come out and say hello! Here is a sampling of what we are bringing to the table…
This picture gives you a better idea of their size; about 12×12
Alrighty, here are mom and dad’s offerings;
Mom also created the same nativity that graced my mantle last year. I don’t have a current picture, but this gives you an idea of what it looks like. She’s only charging $35.
Dad has also created a lovely little bench that will be at the sale; I don’t have a picture of it! The next picture makes me sad; the quality is AWFUL; can you say inside dim lighting? This is one of the most impressive creations (to me)…it’s a desk calendar with photos of Pittsfield. It is CLASSY, people. If you are a local or know someone that has moved away, this would be a great gift. Only $12! Mom and Dad had a great time creating this beauty.
My God Mother also sent some adorable little girl’s dresses; makes me wish I had a sweet little one to wear it!
So *this* is what I’ve been up to lately, and I’ve had so much fun. Were I not to sell a thing, it just feels great to have accomplished something creative! If you see anything in this post that interests you, but you can’t make it to the Open House, let me know!
PS…just talked to more crafters this morning; there will be refinished furniture, jewelry, photography prints, cards, art, just to name a few more things! Should be wonderful!
